Mid-year Top 5

The quiet of the past week offered a perfect chance to revisit the year's albums and think about what really stands out after repeated listens. That and it was time to make our semi-annual mixed cd to distribute while watching friends light fireworks.

Top 5 albums of 2007, so far:
Arcade Fire -- Neon Bible
LCD Soundsystem -- Sound of Silver
Feist -- The Reminder
The National -- Boxer
Pela -- Anytown Graffiti (repeat listening of this song brings joy [via kexp])

Honorable Mentions:
White Stripes -- Icky Thump (this one might make it to the top yet)
!!! -- Myth Takes
Cloud Cult -- Meaning of 8
Menomena -- Friend and Foe

Of all the above, the Feist album surprised me most, her songwriting truly matches her beautiful voice now.
